What do we believe? How do we operate? What sort of structure do we abide by?
There are some of the questions I had after deciding that the way I had always “Done church” just wasn’t cutting it. But what was a viable Biblical alternative?
Over the past couple of years, I’ve compiled a few helpful resources for studying and learning about the home or organic church movement. Some of these authors and works contain contradictory views, especially when it comes to issues such as the role of women in the meeting, how elders are to be chosen and function, and how new fellowships are to be formed. In spite of this, however, I have found a fairly unified core of teachings, centered on the accounts and practices of the early church recorded in Scripture.
So without further ado, here are the best resources I’ve found when it comes to home church.
- New Testament Reformation Foundation
- Searching Together
- Present Testimony Ministry
- Break Bread Ministries
- The Assembling of the Church
